Bird in Flight

Amazing artwork by Brazilian artist L7matrix. Showing birds in flight, the wings evaporate into wisps of colour which the bird ends up surrounded by as it takes off into flight. The wisps then act as trails in the sky on the wall around it leading to an enchantment of colour. This can be seen on the side of ‘Zero Green’ a shop on the corner of North Street and Merrywood Road Bristol

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.
A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.

The First Snowdrops

lightX

‘’The bed of flowers
Loosens amain,
The beauteous snowdrops
Droop o’er the plain.
The crocus opens
Its glowing bud,
Like emeralds others,
Others, like blood.
With saucy gesture
Primroses flare,
And roguish violets,
Hidden with care;
And whatsoever
There stirs and strives,
The Spring’s contented,
If works and thrives.’

Goethe
